The 2019 Jeep® J6 Concept mixes classic Jeep truck styling of the late 1970s with prototype and production parts from the Jeep Performance Parts division Mopar.
The Jeep J6 is based on the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon two-door configuration, maximizing cargo space with a large, six-foot functional bed “box” area that is 12-inches longer than the standard Jeep Gladiator bed. Mopar and the Jeep design staff in the FCA Product Design Office, reached back in time for the custom Metallic Brilliant Blue paint, a homage to the exterior look of the 1978 Jeep Honcho pickup. The overall length of the J6 Concept is 201-inches, while the wheelbase clocks in at 118.4-inches, matching the wheelbase of the current-generation Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
The upsized bed area is guarded by a prototype body-color matching spray-in bed liner. A sturdy, two-and-a-quarter-inch steel Jeep Performance Parts prototype sport/roll bar installed in the bed carries a set of four, 5-inch Jeep Performance Parts LED lights that shine at 4,800 lumens each. The prototype spare tire carrier can store up to a 37-inch off-road tire.
Prototype 17-inch beadlock wheels with a “deep dish” design are set off from the Metallic Brilliant Blue exterior with a Brass Monkey finish, encircled by a silver beadlock ring. A production Jeep Performance Parts 2-inch lift kit works with aggressive the 37-inch tires, add extra trail clearance.
Additional modifications defend the Jeep J6 Concept against off-road obstacles, including a prototype 2-inch steel stinger bar that bolts to the stock steel Rubicon front bumper and rock rails customized with two-inch steel tubes welded to the standard Jeep Gladiator rails. The concept hardtop is removable, and heritage styled Jeep J6 badging is swapped on the tailgate and side fenders.
The stinger bar acts as a mounting point for four additional five-inch Jeep Performance Parts LED lights, with another two bolted on near the A-pillars, for a total of 10 five-inch LEDs working together to illuminate the trail. The grille is custom Mopar Satin Black, and the stock Jeep Gladiator Rubicon hood is accented with Mopar hood latches featuring the Jeep logo.
The 3.6-liter engine receives a performance bump through the Jeep Performance Parts cold-air intake.
Exterior DNA flows into the interior of the Jeep J6 Concept. The instrument panel inserts match the body color and Katzkin leather seats and armrests are also accented with body-color blue stitching. The horn pad is customized with a classic Jeep badge. The auxiliary switch bank offers a central operating location for the 10 LED lights, and the trailer brake control switch showcases the ability to tap into additional stopping power when towing. A bright pedal kit, all-weather floor mats and molded doorsill guards with the Jeep logo round out the lineup of Mopar accessories.
